I have recently finished my PhD with the title 'The Significant Other: a Literary History of Elves' in the English department of Cardiff University, where I have also been teaching medieval and Renaissance literature. Since then I been working as a translator, writer, editor, proofreader and tutor in my business Mandria Word Works. The intention is that I will over time move over to making a living as a fiction writer. I would describe my writing as speculative fiction: it proposes new and to us strange beings, cultures and ways of living. I am interested in seeing possibilities and would describe myself as a creative thinker.
I'm passionate about
changing the way we live to be able to live.
